. it was the first trip president obama made to israel and the palestinian territories since he was elected but there was no real banner diplomatic accomplishment. we'll expect to see the main issues that were discussed here continue to be the focus of the u.s./israeli relationship. syria, iran, the israeli/palestinian peace process. they will continue to coordinate closely on syria and iran. you can expect to see israel continue to demand that the u.s. exert strong pressure on iran to prevent it from getting a nuclear weapon, and you can also expect to see secretary of state john kerry back here in israel and the palestinian territories, more often than his predecessor, secretary clinton, as the u.s. tries to get the peace process back on track, which, of course, the obama administration failed to do in the first term. john, diana. >> and that trip coming to an end later on today, alex marquardt, thank you so much for that. >>> a suspect in the murder of colorado's prison chief has been killed and shot in a shootout in texas. >> he has been identified as evan spencer ebel, an ex-con and a
up with regular unleaded. maybe so, but dysfunction still reared its head on president obama's trip to the middle east. it it wasn't congress causing problems but obama's ride. the heavily armored presidential limousine, known as the beast, was towed away in jerusalem before obama even landed in israel. an official said it malfunctioned wednesday morning when the driver filled up using regular gas instead of diesel. >> they're very, very meticulous about that sort of thing. and i'm quite surprised and i can tell you they did not knowingly put in the wrong type of fuel. >> ralph basham is a former director of the secret service. it's not the first time this car has met its match. in dublin two years ago -- a steep driveway at the u.s. embassy proved too much for the low-riding beast. president obama wasn't in the car at the time but he reportedly watched from the identical one behind it as agents worked for 15 minutes to unwedge the first limo. the beast and its replicas weigh eight tons. while the secret service is tight lipped about the specifics of the car, it reportedly has sever
from president obama's middle east trip. hours before he arrived in israel, his massive nine ton armored limo broke down. the beast as the car is known, had to be towed to a garage after mechanical failure. not sure how you replace a vehicle with eight inch thick steel doors but the secret service did. they bring multiple vehicles and even the mechanic on the trips just in case. and quite a way to say thank you, president obama brought a magnolia church to shimon perez. but as soon as president obama left, the israelis dug it up. the tree was sent off for pesticide testing. foreign plants have to undergo a series of checks. according to reports, the tests could take months. i think they may want to have done their home work and figured that out before. last month a hacker got ahold of some of george w. bush personal e-mail revealing the 43rd president's hidden hobby, oil painting. let me know if i'm too loud. here are some self portraits showing bush in the shower and one of the former president soaking in a bathtub. the hobby is more like a talent. the hacker revealed more photo
this trip a very successful one. you know, they had prime minister netanyahu and president obama had their moments. they exchanged laughs. there were, you know, it was a far cry from a moment in the oval office that we saw last year where there was very -- there was a lot of tension. i think that he sort of achieved what he wanted to do there on iran, on middle east peace, on trying to move that along a little. so i think he sort of, you know, this was a trip to really sort of embrace israel, to kind of give them a nod. he hadn't gone his entire four years, his entire first term. so i think that this was a largely positive trip for him. >> andy, the speech the president delivered to young palestinians and israelis on thursday, it was -- it was a great speech. let's listen to some of that. oh, i wish we could have. i just got from my director we don't have it. it was a great speech. did you interpret it that way, as well? i mean it seemed to appeal to both sides. all the applause that was peppered throughout that speech. >> the speech on thursday was the centerpiece of this trip for p
